Thousands of Women Who Lived Under Islamic State in Baghuz Arrive at Refugee Camp in Syria

Thousands of displaced people arriving at the al-Hol refugee camp in Hasakah, from Baghuz, Islamic State’s last enclave in east Deir Ezzor, face harsh conditions, including hunger and cold, the International Committee of the Red Cross has said.The United Nations said that 6,000 people arrived at the camp in Syria from the Islamic State-held area over a 72-hour period, increasing the number of residents at al-Hol to 47,000 on February 24.

The report said that 99% of the new arrivals at the camp were women and children.In this footage, from Kurdish news outlet ANHA, a woman says she has no regrets about joining Islamic State.Interviewed at the 50-second mark of this footage, she says: "I am not regretful, and I wish I had a hundred sons to offer for the sake of God.

Because I went for God, I didn’t go for al-Baghdadi [the leader of Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant]… I went for the sake of God.

And with God’s permission, we will be killed for God’s sake.” Credit: ANHA via Storyful
